General School Mission

At the heart of any system of early childhood education should be the child and to this end Victorian offers a Montessori based program. We compliment the Montessori learning materials and philosophy of education with:

Arts and Crafts
Music and Movement
Outdoor Play and Exploration
Cooking Activities
Montessori method is based on a sensible balance of freedom and structure specifically designed for the young child. It allows the child to learn the way he/she learns best by doing things themselves. It is a system which provides necessary limits while allowing the child to make his/her own choices, thus exercising their sense of freedom and spontaneity. Children develop a strong sense of independence, positive self esteem, and a lifelong motivation for continuous learning.

Although the Montessori method has very definite structures, it is also flexible and open to individual interpretations. The Victorian approach includes a great deal of playfulness, laughter and affection. Our concern is primarily the child's social development and positive self-image.

Victorian Montessori is dedicated to providing high quality childcare personalized with love and affection.
